The NOOSE Headquarters as seen from the east.

The NOOSE Headquarters (also called the Los Santos Government Facility) is the main operating base and offices for the National Office of Security Enforcement in Grand Theft Auto V.

It is located deep in the Palomino Highlands within the eastern coast of San Andreas. The headquarters is located east of the city of Los Santos and southeast of the Land Act Reservoir. It is accessible by an exit on Route 15 and its main entrance is located on Sustancia Road. The NOOSE headquarters are based on the Twin Towers Correctional Facility in Los Angeles.


The NOOSE headquarters consists of two levels of security checkpoints at the entrance leading to the main buildings. The facility is primarily composed of three buildings: Record Database Center Server Banks, Record Database Center Processing Zone A, and Record Database Center Processing Zone B. None of the three buildings are player accessible.

The facility also has a large parking lot overlooking the highway and a delivery and storage area which contains several smaller buildings of unknown name or purpose. The facility is prominently guarded, including an initial gatehouse off on Sustancia Road and a second gatehouse closer to the main campus; however, in spite of all the guards, and security warnings, the player can still access and explore the area without a wanted level. Beyond guards, the area is populated by other individuals, most likely employees.

A Buzzard Attack Chopper always spawns on the roof, making NOOSE HQ a safe and reliable (if somewhat out of the way) source for air transportation.

In Grand Theft Auto Online, one of the missions in the Doomsday Heist update requires the crew to sneak to the HQ's server farm room. According to Lester, this server farm is where "dirty little secrets" are stored by the government, including every search, every Lifeinvader stalk, anything said in or near an IFruit phone or done in front of a Panoramic TV, basically implying "government espionage". At least one of the access is through an elevator to reach an observation room connected by a small passageway, then using the stairs to the lower floor where the server farm is seen in a grid-like pattern, along with various monitoring screens.
